||Spring is rapidly approaching -- time to check tackle, and see what
new rods are on the market for this year. As rod technology increases,
so does the price it seems.
I know that living on a budget means that many things stay as dreams
due to the cost. Well, fly rods do not have to stay as a dream any
longer. If you have a bit of patience and the time, just about anyone
can build a rod. I think there is a myth that rod building is too
difficult, or you need too many expensive tools, you need too much
space, or you might make a mistake on your first rod. Nonsense!
Rod building is quite easy, relaxing, rewarding, and most of all
Because rod building is done in steps, mistakes are easy to fix.
I watch you through the entire process, and guide you through with
Why rod building? Why purchase a rod that every other customer
to Sage, Winston, Redington, and St. Croix already own? Why not
customize a rod to you? Are you left or right handed? Have you every
wished that a hook keeper was in a different place? Or, that the
cork was a different shape? Maybe you wanted a down locking reel
seat as opposed to up locking reel seat or vice versa. These are
just a few of the customizations you can do.
What about price? Most blanks are 50% or more below the cost of
a factory finished rod. After adding components you can save up
to 60% off the cost of a factory rod!
What about colors? Do you have a bold personality? Do you want
a very dark rod so it does not spook fish? The choices are limitless.
Come in and talk to Danny Smith to see if this is a good fit for
you. Our staff is there to help any way that we can!
There is nothing more rewarding than catching a fish of a lifetime
on a fly you tied, and a rod you built!
